CLP: Sexual Orientations and Sexual Preferences

February 24, 2020 @ 4:00 pm

Professor Halwani will present his current research on the nature of sexual orientations and sexual preferences. Among the questions he will explore are the extent to which people’s sexual orientations are influenced by biology, social environment, and individual choice. He will also explore the range of different sexual orientations. In addition, he will explore whether sexual preferences–the preference for a certain kind of sex partner (e.g. someone with blue eyes, someone who presents as strongly masculine)–should be understood in the same way as sexual orientations, and whether the notion of sexual preferences might not be morally and theoretically superior to the notion of sexual orientations in our discourse about sexuality.
